I'm very pleased to announce that Uberthons 'Turkeython' has been named, by Competitor magazine, one of the 24 must do races in the United States for November and December. Why am I not surprised? If you have followed my journey of participating in the Uberthons Oregon Spring Half Marathon in May, and the recent Halloweenathon at Meriwhether Golf Course, you'll get a small taste of just how awesome Uberthons events are.

The Turkeython will take place on Thanksgiving day, Thursday, November 27. The course has moved to start/finish at Bridgeport Village in Tualatin. You may choose from a 5k or 10k run or walk, 10k 2-participant relay, and there is a Kids Trot for all the youngsters! The race is 75% full, so definitely get your family together and get registered really soon for this event, before it sells out!

Registration is $35 for the 5k for adults 18 and over, or $20 for participants under 18. The 10k distance is a double-loop of the 5k course, with registration at $40 for adults 18 and over, or $20 for those under 20. The 10k relay team for adults is $65 per team, and those under 18 can participate for $43. Brings the children along for the free Kids Trot. You may also be a virtual runner for $30. Your registration fee includes the impressive Turkeython finisher medal.

Also, big kudos to Uberthons for doing this. Bring a brand new toy or item listed (located at the bottom of the Turkeython website) to the Turkeython event. These items will be given to the children at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital!

I knew Uberthons races were great, and now Competitor magazine thinks they are great, too.

  1. Yea! The 2011 Turkeython was my very first Uberthons race, and I’ve run every Turkeython since. That’s Cook Park 5K (2011), Beaverton 10K (2012), Washington Square 10K (2013), and now Bridgeport 10K (2014).
